Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. 

Over the last few weeks Billy has just not been himself...with constant fatigue, chills and a low grade fever. After a short trip to the store that had him was time to go to the ER. We went thinking he needed fluids for dehydration or maybe his iron was low. Little did we know in a short 3 hours...we would be on our way to being admitted. And then a diagnosis of some sort of cancer. Just a Sunday morning...hanging around the house...and now we are on day 4 of a hospital stay that may take many weeks. 

Cancer doesn't care who you are or how old you are. Cancer sucks! Never in a million years did I think we would be on this end of things. We have delivered so many Chemo Care Bags to people going through this exact same thing for several years. And here we are on the other side. 

CaringBridge is a nonprofit social network dedicated to helping family and friends communicate with and support loved ones during a health journey. Learn more about CaringBridge.
